LOL, that's how I cook okras, too. I only seasoned them with salt though. Maybe I should be a little more creative..... fresh tiny okra boiled until just tender and seasoned....
My cucumber died because of my laziness to buy the right soil and re-pot them. I'll try again. I'm not gonna eat them, I'll just use them to refresh my eyes I still haven't planted my sunflower seeds but I'll wait till I could get the right soil for potting. It's getting higher than 85 degrees here so it's time!.... We did buy 5 plants this year but the 3 I planted out in May died - pretty sure it was too cold for them. The other 2 that stayed under glass survived but don't seem to be doing much. Will try again next year but I think I need to find out a bit more about growing it in the UK first.
Have got some sweet corn planted but it's going to be at least another month before we have at least some fresh corn on the cob to eat.
